CLARKSVILLE, Ark. – An Arkansas school district is allowing guns in schools but there’s a catch.

More than 20 Clarksville teachers will undergo 53 hours of training to become “armed guards” for the schools.

The training will teach the educators how to respond to campus shooters.

Arkansas has a law allowing for armed guards in schools.
